The Pola Museum of Art’s collection of paintings enables the viewer to trace the evolution of art through a wealth of high-quality works stretching from 19th-century Impressionism to 20th-century abstract art. In this permanent exhibition, we examine some intriguing characteristics of these masterpieces by focusing on two aspects: form and color. In Section I, by comparing painting to the three-dimensional medium of sculpture, we shed light on features of paintings that are related to form. As we compare these two genres, we are also reminded that the use of color is one of painting’s unique expressive techniques. Enchanted by color, painters closely observe its effects as they polish their skills day after day, eventually arriving at their own singular means of expression. In Section II, we look at some of the most prominent artists who are known for their original approach to color from a variety of perspectives.
